Healthcare-associated infections are one of the top ten causes of death in the United States. From a cost perspective, this equates to more than $5 billion a year for facilities to fight these infections. Reducing the risk of your patients contracting an infection is the responsibility of your entire staff.
Theses infection control webinars are offered in two three-hour sessions, one week apart and will examine the impact of infections on healthcare delivery systems and the implementation of strategies that can reduce or prevent the spread of infections.
After completing these webinars, participants should be able to:
- Identify the standards related to medical infection control
- Understand ways to prevent or reduce the spread of infection at your facility
This infection control curriculum, developed by the Statewide Program for Infection Control and Epidemiology and approved by the NC Department of Public Health, prepares designated healthcare providers to implement the North Carolina rule, 10A NCAC 41A .0206 INFECTION PREVENTION – HEALTH CARE SETTINGS.
